The Legend of Hodsock

Once upon a time lived a tree called Elm. There were a rich family, who lived in a colossal house, explored a forest. They had a little sister called Emma. She went up to this tree and touched it. She felt really dizzy and then…she vanished.

“Hahahaha” shouted Elm. Her Mum and Dad ran around the magnificent¬†forest to find Emma. Sadly, her mum touched the tree and disappeared. The tree stopped shining and her dad saw blood on the tree and he ran. Dad ran back to the tree and recognised that the blood was gone. He heard footsteps. He felt a warm, soggy hand on his woolly coat. He ran with a fright. Dad saw the tree speak to this man in the forest.

“Hey you there” shouted Dad. He saw the tree and disappeared. He saw a note and it said “Help me!”… but the other side was gone.

“Dad” shouted a familiar voice.

“Emma my sweetie is that you”shouted Dad

“Yes dad” screamed Emma. Later, Dad ran to Emma and saw she had a squirrel in her hand.

“Can we keep it?” said Emma. Emma was happy to have a pet. She was scared about mum.

“Where’s Mum” cried Emma.

“I don’t know” said Dad

The mythical shadow

After this day I was scared for life…

Regretfully, I was walking back from school alone and I decided to take a little shortcut through the alarming forest. So I set off, as fast as a flash without any concerns at all but when I stepped into the forest and straight away I felt a shiver on my spine. The crooked trees swayed to the wind and bent over the razor-sharp fence. I saw I ghostly shadow watching me ask turned around. I stepped forward a little and it raced towards the fencing. I spun around thinking I was seeing things but no there it was staring into my soul. “Hey!!” I shouted and then started running. I blinked. It was gone. Ever since that haunted day I never walked down that haunted path through the forest ever again…
